I'm so tired. I'll be honest about it, I'm old and out of shape and I painted the bathroom yesterday. So my knees, back, and right hand hurts from holding that stupid paint brush.
|This is a picture of our bathroom about 6 years ago|
This all started we we decided we needed an update on wallpaper. Some of the old was faded and falling down so we decided it was time to get new. I mean that would be easy and just a one day job, maybe two, right? I even stripped the old wallpaper off without a problem the day before yesterday.
Then I looked around and said we need to paint. That's where I made the mistake (looking around). The ceiling was the worst because I think I dodged that job 6 years ago LOL. I couldn't put up new wallpaper and have the walls look bad so a trip to the hardware for a gallon of paint and a few new knobs for the cabinets was in order.
Then, I had to get down on my knees and paint the bottom trim, reach above my head for the ceiling, and bend over again and again to reload that stupid paint brush. I'm writing this to you in the middle of the night because everything hurts and it's hard to sleep. I can't even decide which area first to put the pain medicine on. Not only that but I keep thinking about putting up that wallpaper...it's a nightmare. Well, it won't be happening tomorrow because I need a ride away from here!
Thank goodness the floor still looks great.
Next time the bathroom needs a update I'm calling someone. Well I'll probably have to because I'll be older than I am now LOL.
I do have a older (the word of the
day night ) post on some helpful hints to help make painting a breeze if you would like to read it here.
So, I'm sorry but no Frugal Friday this week. I did save some money by staying home and working but it was not fun, satisfying but not fun.
Did you guys see all the giveaways I have this week? There are some good ones so be sure to come enter! I'll come back on Saturday morning with the free books as long as my fingers are working enough to type.
